Irwell Catchment Natural Flood Risk Management Group

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

During 2016 Natural England applied for an additional round of funds, through the DEFRA Countryside Stewardship Facilitation Fund, to promote natural flood management among groups of farmers in areas hit by floods in late 2015. A bespoke, flood focused, scheme was subsequently launched in December 2016. In North West England funds were awarded to four projects, including an application in the upper River Irwell catchment led by Groundwork MSSTT in its role as host for the Irwell Catchment Partnership.
